White Party Fundraising in Shanghai


IPWS is delighted to announce over 35,000 RMB was raised for the World Academy for the Future of Women over the weekend!

We hosted a gorgeous White Party Brunch at the URBN Hotel garden terrace on Saturday and we congratulate our community for such a large contribution to the World Academy!

The World Academy for the Future of Women (WAFW) is a bold and daring leadership program focused on developing young women for leadership roles that will address and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Begun on the campus of Sias International University in 2009, the World Academy grew from a one year program for 100 women to a multi-level three year program for women, and a Men’s Academy for the Future of Women, a program requested by men students, which now replicates the women’s program and prepares men to support the advancement of women.

PURPOSE: To advance and accelerate the leadership of women worldwide.

MISSION: To empower women through the discovery of their passion, purpose, and path to success, calling forth the full expression of human possibilities through collaborative and inclusive partnerships.
